Development of SIGMA FF High Speed 65mm T1.5 and 65mm T2.5 Classic CINE Lenses
SIGMA Corporation (CEO: Kazuto Yamaki) is pleased to announce its development of the FF High Speed Prime Line 65mm T1.5 FF, an addition to the offering of SIGMA CINE LENS, interchangeable lenses for movie production. The 65mm T1.5 FF is a FF High Speed Prime Line lens which is compatible with large format digital cinema cameras. This is a prime lens that incorporates an optical system specially designed for cinema lenses to meet the stringent demands of this audience. As one of the few options compatible with the latest digital cinema cameras with large image sensors, it further expands the possibilities of movie production in the digital age. With the addition of the 65mm T1.5 FF, SIGMA will have a total of eleven 35mm full-frame compatible prime lenses ranging from 14mm to 135mm.
SIGMA Corporation is also announcing the development of a 65mm T2.5 FF from the SIGMA CINE LENS “FF Classic Prime Line”. The Classic Prime Line 65mm T2.5 FF adopts the optical system designed exclusively for the 65mm T1.5 FF cinema lens, but like the previously released FF Classic Prime Line lenses, the optical system is centered upon uncoated lenses. This configuration makes it possible to achieve both the high resolution that SIGMA CINE LENS is known for, as well as classic image expression with low contrast and beautiful flaring and ghosting effects. With the addition of the 65mm T2.5 FF Classic Prime Line lens, SIGMA now offers a total of 11 of the expressive 35mm full-frame prime lenses ranging from 14mm to 135mm.
Finally, SIGMA Corporation is pleased to announce that the "FF Classic Prime Line", previously sold only as a ten lens set, will be available for purchase individually.
Pricing and availability for these new lenses has not yet been announced. Both of the new 65mm cine lenses announced at this time will be exhibited at IBC 2022, scheduled to take place in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, from September 9th to 12th, 2022.
